Nintendo Switch won’t see a hardware revision anytime soon – report

According to a recent report by the Wall Street Journal, Nintendo is more interested in peripherals than a revised version of Switch for the time being.

Sources referenced within the report claim that Nintendo is waiting longer than it usually would to release hardware iterations of the popular Switch console.

Instead, it wishes to focus on peripherals, such as the upcoming Nintendo Labo, that will take advantage of the system’s capabilities.

The report also states that Nintendo hopes waiting on the introduction of new hardware models will allow Switch to stay relevant for a longer period of time.

If you’re hoping to pick up Nintendo Switch with a larger screen or increased battery life in the coming months, you’re out of luck for now.

Nintendo Switch is still a fantastic console, boasting a wide range of exclusives such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Super Mario Odyssey.

“I’ve slowly but surely been won over by the charm of the Switch. Its versatility and accessibility make it a joy to play, particularly as a portable machine. With Nintendo swiftly addressing my biggest concern with the hardware, it’s hard to argue this console isn’t absolutely brimming with potential in the months to come,” Brett Phipps wrote in his review of the console.
